Dear Friend of Yiddish,
Perhaps you’ve heard the story of Jews rescued by Japanese dignitaries, but what happened when they arrived at their ultimate destination, the great open port of Shanghai, China?
Do you think it was merely one long feast of Chinese food?
Think again.
And join us for this fascinating story of resilience, historic turmoil, hardship,
kinship and compassion.
See below for details and RSVP.

At the start of WW II. 20,000 Jewish refugees made it to the cosmopolitan city of Shanghai, even as a revolution was raging in China and the Japanese were about to occupy the city.
  • How did these mostly peniless refugees manage in a totally alien culture?
  • Did they maintain their Jewish religious and cultural ways?
  • What befell them when the enemy allied with Hitler, Japan, commanded the city?
  • How did their experience differ from previous Jewish immigrants to Shanghai?
  • Why did none of them remain at the end of the War in a city to which Jews had already contributed so much?
Please join our special guest Dvir Bar-Gal for a lively presentation on this extraordinary and little-known story. (In English)

Dvir Bar-Gal

is an Israeli TV creator and photojournalist who has made Shanghai his home since 2001. Since 2003 Bar-Gal has been leading the Shanghai Jewish Heritage tours and is a popular speaker all over the US about this long-gone community . He has published three photography books and the first Passover Haggadah of China.
In addition to illuminating the fascinating history of Jewish settlement in 19th and 20th Century Shanghai, he has made it his life’s mission to search for the lost Jewish cemeteries and their displaced gravestones.

Emerging composer LJ White adds to the fun with a new work commissioned by the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus.
